Food Safety is critical to the fresh produce industry. In addition to being a major public health issue, food safety issues have had an adverse economic impact on growers, packers, processors and shippers of fresh produce.
In addition to a discussion of current and proposed legislation, the latest research on produce safety, and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMPs), this workshop will cover the elements of putting together a comprehensive food safety program.
This course will teach participants how to develop and document a food safety management program based on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) for their specific operations.
Breakout sessions are structured to teach participants how to identify and prevent food safety hazards, monitor hazard reduction procedures, develop control measures, and methods to document and verify the results of their efforts.
This workshop, accredited by the International HACCP Alliance, is targeted to produce packers, to assist in the development and customization of food safety programs for their facilities, using a HACCP-based approach.
**Please note: NO substitutions, transfers, or refunds will be issued after registration closes
The fee for this course is $250. Registration includes the course materials and a certificate of completion. Participation for the entire training is required for the certificate.
